The Farmers Meeting. ei
A large crowd gathered in Manning a
last Saturday in response- to the call
for the farmers to take steps to organ- h
ize themselves into township clubs to 01
devise plans by which they might pro
tect themselves against the greed of b
trusts and other unholy combinations, m
whether the same is -capitalized by ez
foreign, or home robbers. The meet- b
ing from point of numbers was very is
gratifying, but as is always the case bi
whenever the farmers have under- d
taken anything for their benefit or pro- c
tection there was floating about in the in
crowd a class of boot-licks for the M
monied men, trying to throw a wet W.
blanket on the proeeediugs.with "Oh! if
this is nothing but an electioneermnz af
scheme to boost some fellow into office" h(
and "this is a humbug," and one smart
Aleck with a knowing wink in his eye.
sucking one end of a cheroot which was le
given to him by a stock-holder of an it
oil mill, strutted up to a group of gen
tlemen and remarked, "I do not pro- ec
pose to join this project, it is nothing d(
but a political dodge which Appelt has
brought about to have himself elected w
to the legislature." The poor fool
whose breeches-seat needed patching, a
and whose children, we have no doubt, m
would hail with delight a good square
meal that is cooked at home, need not
let such a thought fret him one instant, e
and for the benefit of this measly in
creature, also those who gave him the
little speech to say, Appelt has no idea
of being a candidate, nor will he be 'ar
candidate in the next primary- and
could not be induced to be, oi;'even if
every man, woman and po, d in Claren- s
don county were to 'ge it. We sug- bE
gested this meetin and we earnestly
pray that great r - will result to a ho
class of peo - who are the prey of
every devi that human agencies and
the De -~ can devise; everything and
verybody must depend on t'ie farmer, g
and yet they get less from their weary tr
toil than any.other class. If they got
just treatment there would be no com- er
plaint, but all kinds of schemes are in- bi
vented and concocted to fleece the tiller
of the soil. beca use he will not take the ri
same intelligent interest in his own
welfare, as other avocations take. We n
are not urging the organization of them
farmers- to make unreasonble demands, cc
but we are, and we thank God for the
ability to urge them for their own T
sake and for the sake of their children 4
to get together and call a halt upon tt
these greedy wolves who take advan- s
tage of their unorganized condition to le
take their products for a much less t
price than it is worth, and return it to
them in manufactured form at an out
ragously enormous profit. t1
Onaccount of the court house under- y~
going repairs, the meeting was opened at
on the "square," and Dr. L. M. Woods "
one of the committee called the meet- nc
ing to order and proceeded to state its t
object. He was evidently well pre- se
pared to fire a heavy gun, because in
explaining the object, and telling his t
audience, "this was no time for speech- E
es. action was wanted" in a very ex- tl
tended manner he went into the sub- tl
ject of trusts, until Mr. W. M. Piowden P1
another member of the committee in- b(
terrupted, and nominated Mr. E. D. t1
Hodge for temporary chairman and Mr. '
James Reaves secretary, Mr. Reaves Pl
however declined, ar'd Mr. J. Grier A
White was made secretary. Mr. Hodg'e a.
on assuming the chair, explained why di
it was that he did not attend the com-t
mittee meeting, stating that he was in uj
the upper part of the State at the time, yc
but he was in full accord with the r'
effort to organize, and he believed the t
farmers by organization can accomplish bx
good for themselves. It was suggested E
that Hon. Eli D. Smith of Lynchburg ~
was present and that he be invited to ad- li
dress the crowd, and it was evident yc
the suggestion was not very palatable t
to at least one man whose wind mechan- p'
ism was in good working condition, and 15
if not allowed to bring it into action 01
the pain would be intense, but the fr
crowd wanted to hear Mr. Smith, and hI
he was introduced. His speech was at- to
tentively listened -to, and it struck s
right lhome to his hearers, as the great is
truths came from his lips. He showed fo
what is being done by the trusts in gen- li
eral,but especially the tobacco,fertilizer tO
' and oil trusts. He endeavored to make t
plain what could be accomplishe~d byD
organization, that capital was organ-D
ized, and by that organization it was r
enabled to make vassals of the unor-.
ganized farmer. His illustrations, and w:
his comparisons were not only appro- c
priate but magnificiently put together. w:
He told his hearers that he was a w.
farmer from choice, and that he pro- D
posed to go out and devote his time and I
talents to the effort to educate the yc
farmer to combine to meet combina- te
tions, andt not to depend upon a reme- Ot
dy from legislative action. He refered v
to the farce-comedy enacted by a former t'
attorney general in his fight against
the Virginia-Carolina-Chemical trust. ce
We regret we are not enabled to give w
his speech in full but some of its sa- t
lient points are as follows:
I want to state here and now what I
believe to be the explanation of the at
condition we are in, and that is this. di
When a merchant goes into business at
he counts up all the cash, insurance,
house rent, cost of goods, clerk hire w
ahd his family support. then 15, 20 or
30 per cent for him and when you. get ac
his goods you pay his price, whereas e1
Mr. farmer with his business methods tO
comes creeping into town with a bale e
of cotton and asks "what'll you give Se
me for this?" and the merchant names 11
the price and then the farmer goes ec
into the store and asks the merchant
what'll he take for so and so. Don't
you see the merchant has both ends of
the rope and he is a fool if he don't
make money. Did you ever think of
it, the merchant weighs and measures
both the stuff he buys and the stuff he
sells and we go around wondering what
is the matter anyhow. If any other
business on Gods earth was run on the
same plan as the farmer runs his, it
would "bust" in a week.
'All other business is organized and
the farmer is his legitimate prey.
The cotton mills. which were looked
upon as a probable blessing to Ihe
South have combined, 20 of them with
a capitalization of $14,000,000. For the
purpose of getting the raw cotton as
cheap as possible. We are told by to
some friend (?) that the high price of p
cotton will ruin the cotton industry. gi
What cotton industry? What in thie at
mischief does the farmer care for the th
prosperity of the mill industry if he to
has got to take starv'ation p~ries for ti<
his cotton in order for them to prosper el
besides, if the mills can pay for their ,th
plants and support, in individual cases, Ipr
as some do, lo0o operatives and furnish a:
them comfortable homes and declare e
over and above this 25 and 30 per cent Ith
Aivdend. Cou~l they not make a ca
sonable per cent with cotton a cent d
two higher. These mills support u
eir operatives, gives them com- s1
etable house, erect expensive mill
ants pay thousands and thousands for e
chinery and a big profit besides: c
ile the men who make the cotton f<
e in old weather beaten unpainted
bins and hardly make enough to pay s
eir store account for clothes and o
tfee. Now who's to blame for this i
ndition of affairs? We ourselves. Tis i
use to be cursing any body but our
vn selves. We are as a class the s
ggest fools God ever made. a
If other men by trust and confidence t
each other form combinations for c
triching themselves out of us why in e
.e name of common sense don't we y
rm combinations to keep them from t
The laws of trade are as available f
r us as them. The rigid rule of busi- 1
ss must be observed by us as by t
em. There is not a man amongst us v
ho would join a farmers combination
get all he could for his cotton, then
hat in the mischief is the use to abuse
.e other man for doing what you'd do b
you could. Besides I believe these I
mbinations are a product of natural ti
w and common sense. All this rot
>out legislating against trust is sick- C
ing. You'll never touch them with a
w till you change the form of our V
>ernment. A man has a right to do t
he pleases with his own - so long as e
does not go contrary to the spirit of n
r democratic law. C
How are you going to fight the to- c
ecco and oil mill trust? You can't n
ake them buy your goods, but you C
.n keep from giving them your to
Lcco and your seed. What we need
more brain and less muscle in our
siness. Up at Clemson the other
.y I heard lectures on how to grow
tton, how to make more cotton, what
the thunder do we went to make
re cotton for when we can't sell
2at we do make to any profit. Besides
we don't know how to make cotton
ter 100 years of experimenting at a
ome how are those fellows up there t
ing to teach us in a few hours. We v
ow how to make it, what we want to t
arn now is how to get something for u
after we make it.
God intends each man to have an n
ual show under His law and if he t
n't 'tis the man's own fault. You s
ay talk as you please about concealed
mpons but I believe that pistols are t
inspiration of God. Time was when o
physical giant with out brain or L
orals was master of men; but gun
iwder has made fighting men equal, a
e printing press makes -arning men o
ual. Steam and- electricity travel- E
g men and, business men equal, and t
m bnations will make opposing In- U
rests equal. We as farmers learning i
m those who fleece, their method of t
cing may be able to fleece some too. i

Do you propose to much longer stand
e robbing of the oil mills? I read in r,
ur county newspaper a statement f<
d I suppose the editor knows what he n
s talking about, that the mills do u

ofit of 100 per cent. Do you remem- p
*r when ther was some agitation in I
e legislature about throttling the sa

u do. The newspaper statement I E
ferred to said that mjeal was sold at

eal freight from Columbia, which has

'ice sold at the Columbia mill. Here b
a local mill imposing a freight rate t
local consumers, and paying the t
eight for the consumer abroad. The r

me mill S20. Is this honest? Yet it b
the consequence of the farmers own e

Cut Off Their Hair.
A procession of the unemployed that
took place in London in 17G4 did not
. meet with any great success or public
sympathy. In that year wigs went out
of fashion, and the wig makers of Lon
- don were thrown out of work and re
duced to distress. They petitioned
George III. to compel gentlemen to
t wear wigs by law. As the wig makers
went in procession to St. James' to pre
sent their petition it was noticed that
most of those persons who wanted to
compel other people to wear wigs wore
no wigs themselves. This striking the
London mob as very inconsistent, they
seized the processionists and forcibly
cut off all their hair.-London Express.
